Various tomato varieties. We've had a lot of rain this year, and enough sun (although we could probably have done with a bit more). For these tomatoes, I dug a trench following a trellised suntrap and filled it with garden soil, manure, my own compost, and peat moss. I mulched it with cedar mulch. I haven't used any fertilizers. I've had to water it about 5 times this year because we've had rain almost every other day.

Vegetable garden update, mid-August 2008
Pole beans. These are all being grown in half whiskey barrels filled with regular garden soil and a bit of my own compost. The last picture in the bean set is an in-ground experiment that hasn't produced any beans yet. The soil used there was some soil I had delivered this year. I think it needs more organic matter added to it, so I'll add a fair amount of my compost to all of these beds next year.
